Penzy's guesthouse is 5 minutes' walk from the beach, a stone's throw from the restaurants, bars and massage parlors in Chaweng. I arrived by boat from Koh Tao and transfer to Penzy's was 150 Baht. The hosts were truly helpful and kind, they have arranged my trip to Eranda SPA to celebrate my birthday, booked snorkeling and safari tours for...

Penzy, her staff and husband were a god send! After a scary situation at another hostel, Penzy stayed up late to quickly set up accomodations. Not only is she fun and absolutly perfect, the hostels location was in a great spot and her advice was spot on.

Very clean guest house, great local advice (like what public transportation prices really should cost) and extremely accommodating! David even got up extra early to put on a NFL game we wanted to watch back home that was only accessible in his office. Penzy is a sweetheart and they both want nothing but the best for you and the rest...

We originally booked just 2 nights in Penzy's however we quickly extended our stay. The rooms were spacious and spotlessly clean, and Penzy and David were excellent hosts; very kind and very friendly. We got the ferry from Krabi and upon arriving in Koh Samui we took a red communal taxi into Chewang at a cost of 100 baht per...

Fantastic value and location at a reasonable price. What really sets it apart though are the staff, nowhere i've stayed has made me feel so welcome and as many other reviews state Penzy herself is very helpful in terms of booking tours/transport. Would have definitely struggled without her! Only slight issue is that the wifi doesn't always reach the rooms...

Backpacking through Southeast Asia and this has been the nicest place we have stayed in so far. The staff is super friendly. The rooms are big, clean, with a tv/ dvd player (loads of dvds at the reception to borrow), fridge and fresh towels everyday. Location wise- it takes 3-5 minutes to the beach. Main bars (e.g Ark Bar) and...

Penzy's Guesthouse is a great value for the price. It has easy access to the beach and the central area of Chaweng beach. It is super clean with nice comfy rooms and good showers. What really sets Penzy's apart though is Penzy herself. She and her staff are SUPER helpful with booking tours, transport, etc. on and off the island....

My girlfriend and I stayed for a few nights in late July/early August 2013. To keep it concise - The location was good for accessing much of the island, the price was good for the room and service provided, and all the members of staff were super-helpful throughout our stay. It was everything I could have hoped for and would...

I stayed here for 4 nights with friends. It was very good value and the room was very clean.

I stayed there for 4 nights last July. The location is great, close to the beach and in a quiet street, 10-15 minutes walking to central Chaweng. The rooms were nice and clean and the staff was absolutely friendly and helpful for everything. Good value for money, highly recommended.
